Two years ago I counted the number of weeks there were between May and September (there were 17 that year) and decided to use that as my guide for my spring/summer sewing. I remember feeling very productive because I knew I had to make those weekends count. Since my sewing has to be divided into work and vacay sewing this year, I knew I needed to do the same thing again.
So after sitting down and looking at the calendar ~ beginning with this weekend ~ not only have I figured out how many weekends I have left but I've also figured out how many can be devoted to work sewing vs. vacay sewing. Obsessive, yes. Effective, I truly hope so! Of course, the recap that I'll do once I return from the cruise and settle into the sewing portion of the vacay (9 glorious days!) will tell the true tale. But already this has brought a calmness to my creative soul, because I was starting to get all fluttery with all of the ideas I have, worried that none of them would be released from my brain and actually sewn up.
Having a predetermined schedule will allow me to concentrate and yes, schedule some of the ideas that I have. I'm not planning a lot of outings this summer because of the cruise so I have the perfect reason to stay home and sew...like I really need one! *LOL* I have some interesting summer work garments planned and now I can go with the flow on the vacay pieces...especially since I'm thinking maxidresses and alot of them!
This antsy feeling always happens to me at the beginning of a new season...and I just needed to tame that beast once again. So how about you? Do you plan your sewing seasons? Or are you a go with the flow person? Me...well I'll be sewing up a storm now that I've calendared my sewing...
...as always, more later!
